AceShowbiz - Sam Smith didn't wait too long to release a new song following his return to music scene with "Too Good at Goodbyes". The English singer/songwriter has released "Pray" to follow up the breakup tune, which was debuted last month.
"Pray" is produced by Timbaland and Smith's longtime collaborator James Napier. "I'm young and I'm foolish, I've made bad decisions/ I block out the news, turn my back on religion/ Don't have no degree, I'm somewhat naive/ I've made it this far on my own/ But lately, that shit ain't been getting me higher," he sings in despair. He continues in the chorus, "Maybe I'll pray, pray/ Maybe I'll pray/ I've never believed, and you know, but I'm gonna pray."
"Pray" is the second track released off Smith's upcoming sophomore album "The Thrill of It All". Along with the new song, the "Stay with Me" hitmaker has released details of the new LP. "My beautiful fans, I am so so excited to finally share this news... My second album 'The Thrill Of It All' is yours November 3rd!! You can pre-order now and find out about live shows at samsmithworld.com xx," he posted on Instagram along with a cover art of the album.
The album features 10 tracks, including a collaboration with YEBBA titled "No Peace". Other musicians contributing to the album include Malay, Jason "Poo Bear" Boyd and Stargate.
The 25-year-old star will embark on a world tour in 2018 in support of "The Thrill of It All".
Smith recently told Rolling Stone that the second album would be "a beautiful little transition." He said, "I'm putting my heart even more out on the f***ing line. I'm going even deeper," before adding. "I can't believe I'm even doing it, but I'm going even deeper."
